NY Spinal Cord Research Needs Your Help!
In 1998 New York made history by being the first state to pass legislation designating a surcharge on motor vehicle violations to fund spinal cord injury research. Now that funding is in jeopardy as the proposed budget diverts this money elsewhere. Significant research progress has occurred because of these research grants – New Yorkers need our help to make sure they aren’t taken away.
There are two ways you can help:
1. Write to Governor Cuomo and explain how essential this funding is to people with spinal cord injuries and their families. Tell your personal story. Letter should be one-page.
Send to :
The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York
State Capitol Building
Albany, New York 12224
2. Attend the special program scheduled February 13th at the state capitol in Albany.
Hear the latest in research and add your voice to the cause.
